CPF President Marilyn Cohen Invites You to Give

ACPAACPA News, Family Services

During this season of giving, we are especially grateful for the support we receive from people like you. With your help, we can continue to assure the future of patients and families in our cleft-craniofacial community.

As an ACPA member, you understand the importance of accurate information and critical connections at the turning points of each individual’s cleft or craniofacial journey. At the Cleft Palate Foundation, we’re here to provide a smoother road and bridges to success for patients and families affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions.

Will you consider supporting cleft and craniofacial resources for patients and families through a generous year-end gift? I assure you, it does make a difference.

Your gift will help us:

  • Connect patients to team care. As you know, the best outcomes for patients receiving cleft or craniofacial treatment are achieved when several types of specialists work together as a team. We help families connect with qualified specialists and teams in their area, since many families don’t know about team care or how to find cleft care specialists until they contact us.
  • Provide educational resources. We are the most reliable stop for accurate information on cleft and craniofacial care in every stage of life. You can download free patient education materials from our website. Printed copies are also available for purchase, allowing you to share expert content to those you serve, even when your time doesn’t allow for in-depth conversation.
  • Fund scholarships and grants. Each year we award college scholarships for students born with cleft and craniofacial anomalies. We also offer professional scholarships for cleft care providers just joining the field and research grants for both new and seasoned investigators.
  • Support families socially and emotionally. You’re aware of the social and emotional challenges families going through cleft care can face. We provide resources for children who experience bullying and offer personalized support and networking opportunities for affected individuals and families. As you know, a sense of community support and connectedness is key for affected individuals of any age.

Please consider the Cleft Palate Foundation in your year-end giving. Your help is needed more than ever and will make an immeasurable difference in the lives of many children and adults.

With gratitude and best wishes for a wonderful holiday season,

Marilyn A. Cohen
President, Cleft Palate Foundation
